Meet the Member: EMMA BOYLE

Meet Emma Boyle, of Emma Boyle Photography. Emma, what made you start your own business?

I was working in law when I first picked up a professional camera – what started as a hobby quickly turned into a full time job. I took the plunge and left my 18 year career to pursue my photography business and never looked back. I started with family and wedding photography when my boys were young, then soon realised I wanted my weekends back as the boys were in school in the week. I had always done a little bit of commercial work and did my first branding photography shoot in 2019 and absolutely loved it. I was still able to work with lovely people and be creative. I did my last wedding in 2020 and went fully into commercial/branding photography.

What do you enjoy the most about being an entrepreneur?

Being able to set my own hours, I can work around my family and I have the best work life balance I could ever have imagined.

Who or what helps you to stay organised?

Organisation is my biggest issue, but I have now learnt to seek help when required. I use Clear Day for my mailing list and occasionally other marketing materials else otherwise it would never get done.
